LINEAR SEDAN

Other parents objected to the elim-
ination of the requirement that high
school seniors take a course in United
States government. Instead, the gov-
ernment course will be an elective.
A similar, less-intensive course is
required in the ninth grade, Fouchey
pointed out, and the state requires
the Michigan Educational Assessment
Program test in American govern-
ment be administered to 11 th-
graders.
-
Robert Stulberg said, "At a time of
world upheaval, when we need to be
reinforcing our teaching of American
government, we are compacting and
diluting those core philosophies that
define and separate who we are as
Americans."
Trustee Priscilla Broulliette, who
voted in favor of the course, said,
"The kind of discussion that will take
place in a class like this will be very
valuable. I have faith in the teachers'
ability to help the kids work things
out.
"To me, it's a question of perspec-
tive," Fouchey said, commenting on
the community opposition.
"Everybody brings their own set of

"

lenses to the course. Some people
think it's too far to the right; others
think it's too far to the left."
In a letter to Cohen dated June 27,
with a copy to the Jewish News,

Fouchey wrote that the district will
begin immediately to "obtain addi-
tional reviews of the curriculum by
consultants and organizations outside
the school district that have expertise
in the areas of social studies and
international relations."
In August, staff members who will
be teaching International Affairs will
have additional training, including
the input obtained from the consult-
ant review. And, early in the course,
teachers will work with students to
develop critical thinking skills.
In the letter, Fouchey also pledged ,
to monitor the course during the
semester and evaluate it, including a
student, staff and parent survey, upon
its completion. In addition, the dis-
trict will consider establishing a
community-based committee to pro-
mote responsible citizenship among
our students through the develop-
ment of school experiences both
within and beyond the curriculum."
The community members who
oppose the course are making plans to
set up a Web site to help the commu-
nity learn more about this and other
curriculum-based issues. The group is
also working on a parents' bill of
rights to be presented to the board. ❑
